The Canidae family is a big one, but it used to be much bigger.
Fighting for free space and limited resources has been (and still is) detrimental to many of these dogs – some of which can only be found in captivity.
Here is a look at the true dogs of the family, which excludes the true foxes.
Although some of the animals in this tribe are called foxes they are not considered true foxes.
Here are some beautiful images of the true dogs of the world. Each one displaying a bit of the personality we have come to love in their domestic counterparts.
